"Mr Sakamoto said that reading had saved his life. Not mathematics. Not money. Not travel. Reading. At a time, he said, when he felt blasted by images, words had anchored him, secured him, stopped his free-falling plunge into nowhere."

This edited collection, Transnational Writing Program Administration, aims to focus wide-spread disciplinary attention to the issues of transnational writing program administration. The number of US based colleges and universities that have established relationships with internationally-based universities has increased significantly since the late 1990s. In February, 2008, the New York Times presented a Global Classrooms series beginning with the article, "U.S. Universities Rush to Set Up Outposts Abroad." Fourteen higher education institutions were mentioned as having established or begun talks to establish international branch campuses.
